Subject Re: [users@httpd] Transparent Proxy Server Installation
Date Wed, 22 Jul 2009 17:09:50 GMT
Hi.

As Andre mentioned, the browser needs a configuration for proxy.

However, the transparent proxy allows users to access WWW without any
configuration.

In fact, I am suing Forward Proxy now and the reverse proxy seems to
be the proxy that I meant.

Am I right? Can anybody make it sure?
